Monday FTB: Leafs having a devil of a road trip

New, comments

The Marlies had a good weekend, the Furies had a good weekend, the Leafs...

NHL: New Jersey Devils at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Leafs lost against the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 in an entertaining game where they largely played well but got stoned by a hot goalie.

Then they sleptwalk through 2.5 periods against the Florida Panthers but somehow managed to steal a loser point from it thanks to a late Mitch Marner flurry.

They’re now facing the New Jersey Devils on the road, who are also having a bad time after they had a hot start. If this doesn’t cure what ails them, I don’t know that I can withstand the doomsday depressed Leafs twitter until the next game.

Please, Leafs. If you won’t do it for yourselves, if you won’t do it for Babs, if you won’t do it for your own mothers after they did the floss dance just for you, then do it to save us from moping Leaf fans!

I posted this link for Saturday, but after two good games for Sandin there’s an update...

Rasmus Sandin is turning heads in the American Hockey League | by Kevin Papetti

And actually, Sandin had another point in the evening after Kevin tweeted that. So Sandin is now at 0.55 PPG. That’s on pace for 45 points over an 82 game season!

That’s per the AHL transfer page. Final rosters for the team aren’t due for about a week, so there’s still time, but not much time.

Some Team Canada fun:

Have a great Monday everyone!
